Double Chocolate Banana Bread


3 very overripe small bananas or 2 larger ones, mashed

3 large eggs, room temperature

¼ cup raw honey

¼ cup full-fat coconut milk, room temperature (blend first if separated)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

½ cup coconut flour, sifted

2 Tbsp arrowroot starch or tapioca flour

6 Tbsp raw cacao powder, sifted

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon sea salt

½ cup dark chocolate chips



1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a medium-sized loaf pan (8” x 4”) with parchment paper.

2. Gently whisk together all dry ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a mixing bowl. Be sure to sift the coconut flour and cacao powder prior to mixing, since they can be lumpy.

3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas with the eggs, coconut milk, honey, and vanilla. Wet ingredients should be as close to room temperature as possible before starting.

4. Gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using a spatula or wooden spoon – batter should not be vigorously mixed or over blended since this interferes with the bread rising. Batter should be relatively thick and lumpy once combined.

5. Stir in about 1/3 cup of chocolate chips, then transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.

6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean of batter (melted chocolate is okay). Allow the loaf to cool for 15 minutes in the pan, then carefully transfer to a wire rack, holding two sides of the parchment paper to help you remove it from the pan. Allow bread to cool completely to room temperature before slicing.

7. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
